Obama wants to poison children! Proposal to stop using toxic mercury fillings on children, pregnant women shot down by feds

by Jonathan Benson, staff writer

(NaturalNews) It recently went public that the Obama administration, through the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), shut down a proposal that would have protected pregnant women and young children from mercury poisoning when going to the dentist.

Top officials within the regime reportedly shut down a proposal by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that would have instructed oral health doctors to stop using mercury fillings to treat cavities in pregnant women, nursing mothers, children under age six, and anyone with kidney disease, neurological problems, and/or a sensitivity to mercury exposure.

The proposal came about after several dental patients speaking at a town hall meeting in San Francisco back in 2011 explained how severe health problems from which they were suffering disappeared after they had their mercury amalgam fillings removed.

The FDA responded by coming up with a plan that Center for Devices and Radiological Health Jeffrey Shuren stated, at the time, would result in policy changes within the next year. But the FDA's proposal was quietly trashed by HHS, which refuses to acknowledge the dangers of amalgam fillings.

"Mercury is one of the most poisonous substances known to mankind," stated holistic physician Dr. David Brownstein, M.D., to Newsmax Health. "It is a potent neurotoxin and is associated with numerous neurological and immune system problems."

"The only reason the government stopped the proposal is because of money. It's cheaper to put mercury fillings in someone's mouth than non-mercury fillings."

Obama opposes mercury in coal plant pollution, but sees nothing wrong with mercury in fillings and vaccines

Because resin composite fillings tend to cost more than mercury-based fillings -- Dr. Brownstein says composites cost about $100 more per tooth -- the government may just be looking out for its bottom line. After all, eliminating amalgam fillings as an option would result in major cost increases for Medicare and Medicaid.

But the Obama regime remains outspoken about the dangers of mercury from other sources, including coal power plants that produce mercury during combustion. Why, then, does it remain silent about mercury in people's mouths, or in childhood vaccines?

"President Obama wants to cut emissions from coal-fired power plants because they emit mercury," says Dr. Brownstein. "But then he says it's okay to have mercury installed in our mouths."

"But the two most common sources of mercury in the human body come from dental fillings containing mercury, and vaccines, and the government allows both of them. The government's priorities are totally misguided. There's no excuse that mercury fillings are still allowed to be used."

Flu vaccines, by the way, contain as much as 25,000 times the maximum legal limit of mercury for drinking water, as we uncovered here at the Natural News Forensic Food lab last year. And yet there hasn't been a peep from the Obama administration about developing safe flu shots that don't pose a mercury risk to young children and pregnant mothers.

As for the coal-fired power plants, the Supreme Court on June 29 blocked the Obama administration's efforts to regulate mercury emissions. The court ruled, following challenges from some 20 U.S. states, that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) failed to take into account how the restrictions would "punish" producers and consumers of energy with higher costs.

"It is not rational, never mind 'appropriate,' to impose billions of dollars in economic costs in return for a few dollars in health or environmental benefits," wrote Justice Antonin Scalia.
